Congresso Internacional sobre Narrativa e Diáspora Portuguesa (1928-2008)

Abstracts (20 min. paper), and panel proposals are invited for
submission. All forms of the diaspora (literary, linguistic,
sociological, historical, cultural, and others) will be considered as
long as they relate to the theme explicit and implicit in the title of
the conference. Please consult the website for suggested topics within
the scope of the Conference.

Two copies of the abstract (500-words) should be sent via e-mail to by March 15, 2008. Please send one anonymous copy for peer
reviewing; the other should include the author's name, affiliation, e-
mail address, and paper title. Late submissions will not be accepted, and
we cannot accept papers that are to be published elsewhere. Acceptance of
your paper for presentation implies a commitment on your part to register
and attend the conference. Notification of acceptance will be sent out
by April 15, 2008. Papers may be presented in any of the following
languages: English, Portuguese, French, and Castilian.

A selection of the papers presented will be published in the independent
refereed volumes (not proceedings). The submitted papers will go through
a blind peer-review process. More information about the volumes will be
circulated amongst the participants soon after the notification of
acceptance. The deadline for submitting papers for evaluation is December
15, 2008.
